Hot Myers’s Rum Toddy
Makes 4 drinks with 25 mg per drink
This toddy, a warming way to start brunch on a wintry day, is served in sugar-rimmed mugs and garnished with a stick of cinnamon. To make this for a crowd, mix up the rum and sugar mixture ahead of time, and add the boiling water at the last minute.
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2/3 cup dark rum
Pinch of ground cloves
3 cups boiling water
4 cinnamon sticks
4 lemon slices
4 Azuca Sugar Sticks
On a small plate, spread out the granulated sugar.
Dip the rims of 4 mugs into cold water, and then dip them into the sugar. Set the mugs aside.
In a 1-quart pitcher, stir together the brown sugar, dark rum and cloves.
Whisk in the boiling water, and mix well.
Pour the toddy into 4 mugs. Garnish each toddy with a cinnamon stick and a lemon slice. Serve immediately.
